|Which is it to be?|
Most Catholics would, of course say, YES! It certainly would fulfil one's obligations.
And, you know what? I lean towards agreeing with them, but only at an angle of about 20 degrees.
I believe that, if no Mass is available on a Sunday, then a Vigil Mass the night before must be regarded as valid in terms of obligation.
But..if an EF Mass was available on the Sunday....Saturday night would be out.
Unless, of course, I was a shift worker and could not make the Sunday Mass.
We are faced with this situation some Sundays in Menevia Diocese and I think it is perfectly legit to attend on the evening before under these circumstances.
Some disagree; I would really like to know where the Latin Mass Society stands on this point.
Do they accept a Vigil EF Mass or not?
